Marc and Greg return from the holiday break to review Voltron Legendary Defender Season 8 on Netflix and the entire series on the whole. We will still be reviewing single episodes in more detail over the next several weeks. Also, our first guests of 2019 are the organizers of VoltCon!, and they have a special announcement!
We want to thank Kevin Clark (Con Chair) and Patrick and Savannah O-Connor (The Shake Ups), the organizers of VoltCon!, for joining us on this podcast.
Activite interlock! Dynotherms connected! Infracells up! Megathrusters are go!
VoltCon! is a 35th anniversary celebration of Voltron, Defender of the Universe! The event will pay tribute to all incarnations of this legendary defender, as well as other classic robot franchises, such as Transformers, Gundam, Macross/Robotech, Power Rangers and more!
Check the website at https://voltcon.org for all the latest news and developments, as well as tickets.
VoltCon! is coming to Indianapolis, Indiana on October 19-20, 2019, and your podcast hosts, Marc Morrell and Greg Tyler, have been invited as guests to present a few panels to attendees. As this is the debut of a new convention with a focus on Voltron, and other big-bot franchises, like Transformers, Power Rangers, RoboTech, Pacific Rim and more, there is limited space and the number of attendees will be limited as well.
We are excited to be a part of the first-ever Voltron-themed convention! We will let you know when additional guests are added and when more information is available. Get your tickets NOW, before they are sold out!
Tickets are $35 and you can get them here:
Here is the guest list so far:
THE SHAKE UPS: LEGENDARY DEFENDERS
The Shake Ups are an award-winning rock band that combines infectious tunes with cosplay and a multimedia presentation for a pop culture-fueled concert experience like no other. Their latest project, Legendary Defenders, is a tribute to Voltron! The band performs at conventions across the U.S. with a repertoire that includes songs from and inspired by a wide variety of cartoon series. The Shake Ups are professional crowd pleasers - and the galaxy's most animated band!
